This is an excellent recipe, with a few modifications. I found that with the addition of yogurt, the mixture became a bit too "soupy." To remedy this, I added equal amounts of chopped celery and onion, which helped "bind" the mixture (you can add maybe 1/2 cup of each). Also, I played with the amount of cider vinegar, as I thought it made it too acidic (more like 1 1.2 tsp). I added more grapes than what was called for, in addition to two chopped apples vice one. I also added more pepper and salt than the recipe called for, along with about 2 tsp of Old Bay Seasoning, as I felt the mixture was a bit flat on taste. A dash of cumin and hot sauce also helped, too. I left out the walnuts because it would not be served right away...soggy walnuts do not taste good after sitting in this mix for awhile.
